Our original standard Mk.II honing guide includes the standard clamping head, straight roller base and angle registration jig. It’s the option most useful for woodworkers who mostly use planes and other wide blades. It accepts blades between 1/2″ and 2-7/8″ wide and up to 15/32″ thick, including skew blades. It hones bevel angles from 15° to 54° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.
The standard head uses a clamping bar that registers on the face of the blade. It accepts flat and tapered blades between 1/2″ and 2-7/8″ wide and up to 15/32″ thick, including skew blades. It hones bevel angles from 15° to 54° and back bevels from 10° to 20°.
The interchangeable rollers attach to the clamping heads with a single thumbscrew. The eccentric axle mount lets you add a micro-bevel to any angle setting with a simple turn of a knob. The straight roller hones straight edges. At 2″ wide, it provides a stable base for even the narrowest of blades. The barrel-shaped camber roller lets you rock the guide slightly to hone a slight curve or camber into a blade edge, eliminating blade tracks when planing.
Offering an impressive range of angle settings, the integral blade angle registration jig squares the blade and sets the bevel angle in one easy step. A scale and sighting mark help center blades when using the standard head; the narrow-blade head is self-centering. Once the blade is clamped, the jig slides off the guide.
